“Aspects of Toric Geometry”

I will quickly go over the basic notions underlying toric varieties and then describe how to use symplectic reduction to construct them. After mentioning the relationship between Fano varieties and reflexive polytopes we will go through a series of examples to illustrate the theory.

"Hairstyles for a Mathematician"

Besides being a useful hair taming technique, braids are also a beautiful object in mathematics. In this talk I will give a selective tour of the wonderful world of braids. We will explore some interesting mathematical nooks and crannies in which braids arise, focusing on a particular representation (the Burau representation) and its connection to knot invariants.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
